I've been knitting on a couple of items, all in preparation for the bigger item. First off was the Scalloway Tam.
Next was the Burra Cowl.
These are both patterns by Marie Wallin, one of my knitting heroes. Both are serving as gauge swatches for the big piece, the Bressay sweater. These are all from the book Shetland, and use Jamiesons of Shetland Spindrift yarn. I have since done my stockinette gauge swatch for the stockinette portion of the sweater and have cast on. Yay me!
I took a ride into the city last week to meet up with my sweet daughter. We went to enjoy the beauty of spring at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.
It was glorious, and a beautiful day!
In case you didn't know, Mia loves bubble wrap!
